Funding Opportunities

Aniara - 2017 Coagulation Research Grant Program
Diagnostic and research company Aniara is inviting applications from established investigators for its 2017 Aniara Coagulation Research Grant program.

A single twelve-month grant of up to $10,000 will be awarded in support of specialized coagulation/hematology research. In 2017, Aniara will consider projects that deal specifically with EDS — Ehlers-Danlos syndrome — and its effects on hemostasis and thrombosis.

Funding is restricted to North America, South America, and Latin America, and Nordic countries. The program does not pay educational tuition, nor does it offer scholarships or fellowships of any kind.

Applicants are expected to have an advanced degree (Ph.D. or equivalent) and be associated with an educational organization or institution. Independent researchers or those pursuing a Ph.D.-level degree may apply, but awards to non-Ph.D. applicants are rare. As a general rule, all applicants are expected to have published a minimum of three articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Application Deadline: November 1, 2017

Department of Agriculture - National Institute of Food and Agriculture
This AFRI Challenge Area promotes and enhances the scientific discipline of food safety, with an overall aim of protecting consumers from microbial and chemical contaminants that may occur during all stages of the food chain, from production to consumption. This requires an understanding of the interdependencies of human, animal, and ecosystem health as it pertains to foodborne pathogens. The long-term outcome for this program is to reduce foodborne illnesses and deaths by improving the safety of the food supply, which will result in reduced impacts on public health and on our economy. In order to achieve this outcome, this program will support single-function Research Projects and multi-function Integrated Research, Education, and/or Extension Projects, and Food and Agricultural Science Enhancement (FASE) Grants that address one of the Program Area Priorities

Application Deadline: June 21, 2017

LAND Studio – Call for Artists
The City Club of Cleveland Murals Artists and teams of artists are invited to submit their qualifications to produce artwork for a mural that will be placed on an exterior wall of the City Club of Cleveland Building, located at 850 Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland.

The mural artwork will be reproduced digitally on the exterior of the building. Because of this, artists from a wide range of disciplines are encouraged to submit. Previous mural experience is not required.

The City Club of Cleveland, now in its 105th year of existence as one of the nation’s great free speech forums, will commission an artist to design a mural for placement on the west-facing exterior wall of its building. The mural, the purposes of which will be to celebrate the principle of free speech and serve as a wayfinding device to the City Club’s second-floor location, will be inspired by an existing City Club mural, Elmer Brown’s “Freedom of Speech,” which graces a wall of the City Club’s main interior gathering place, the Forum.

Brown’s artwork, completed in 1942, represents the breaking of ties to oppression and exclusion, while compelling viewers and attendees at Forum events to ask questions, avoid making assumptions, and keep learning.

Three artists will be paid a stipend to produce conceptual designs for the project. Artists who are invited to produce designs will be expected to produce designs for two possible locations on the building wall. Additionally, a scaled-down version of the mural will be required for indoor display. The artist whose work is chosen for implementation will be responsible for producing the artwork in a scalable electronic format that can be digitally reproduced for installation.

Submission Deadline: April 21, 2017

New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming is celebrating its 11th year; over the history of the program, it has supported research grants and career development opportunities for a network of more than 920 researchers from diverse, underrepresented and historically disadvantaged backgrounds. New Connections is a career development program for early career researchers, providing support to grantees and other individuals who are part of a network of eligible researchers. Through grantmaking, mentorship, career development and networking, New Connections enhances the research capacity of its grantees and network members. The researchers in this program come from multiple disciplines (health, social sciences, business, urban planning, architecture and engineering); work to build the case for a Culture of Health with strong qualitative and quantitative research skills; and produce and translate timely research results.
